    more importantly though, whilst the sh retardlicans were screaming victory about the day of support for c-f-a, ultimately we scored the real victory, in getting them to back down. i fart in the general direction of retardlicans.

    Not even if it were true.

    Unfortunately, we now know that Dan Cathy has stated Chick-Fil-A was doing no such thing.

    Considering they didn't do anything to the gay community to begin with! What a joke! I had a celebration when Chick-fil-A got overwhelming public support. We need to bring back don't ask, don't tell, and get rid of these idiotic gay agenda TV shows too.

    Put their rear ends back in the closet!

    Everywhere they put the gay agenda to a popular vote--they lose!

    They've stopped hurting people and that's good enough for me.
  • twocrows 2012/09/20 15:15:27
    if a man who pledges to stop beating his wife stops there, it's not enough. he must get down on his knees and beg forgiveness. he must help rebuild her self esteem. he must replace her broken teeth. he must enter counseling and learn how to deal effectively with people in general and come to terms with his own self-loathing that led him to beat her in the first place.

    Chik-fil-A has promised to stop the beatings. it has far, yet, to go.
    besides, most likely, it will quietly resume them when the spotlight is gone. that's what abusers do.
  • merlinskiss 2012/09/20 13:05:10
    No good answer except it changes nothing. The real answer is Chick-fil-a could probably care less one way or another. They just want the bad publicity to go away, open their new stores and get their customers back. Much like Walmart who has re-made their image for public consumption. They will still do and say anything they can get away with.
  • Radlad 2012/09/20 11:16:13
    What a bummer. chik-a-fil caved. And for no reason. But I must ask: What did they do to the sodomites....... er I mean homosexuals?
  • moomoof 2012/09/20 05:55:15
    Now i wonder if all the douches that ate their after their declaration of anti-gay only to spite gays will go running away like the palins will she slam them
    Will she be a true supporter of a hard working company or will she abandon ship?

    By the way i find this a bit too little too late but hey what do i know

    So it's okay to blackmail companies that don't agree with you? Guess that's the way of Chicago style politics. Kinda wish Scarface Capone was still around...he'd be eating at Chick-fil-A every day and you wouldn't hear a peep outta anyone.

    how is it blackmail to say "I'm not going to buy your chicken."?
  • Artist~... Eh Poli... 2012/09/20 11:48:36
    It's blackmail when a city alderman refuses to give a building permit because of the wishes of a few malcontent voters.

    you are absolutely right. they have the right to support any cause they please.
    and customers have the right to choose what companies they patronize.
    that's the point.

    meanwhile, the boycotters did not back down. the company did.
    that's the point, too.

    well, of course you're right. the owners will not change their stance and support equality for all. which is why I won't buy their product in future.

    it was 8 years after Nestle stopped killing children in third world countries that I began buying their products again. by that point I could see that they had not quietly returned to the practice.

    and this is a much more difficult pattern to suspend. after all, Nestle was motivated only by profit. bigotry is harder to break.

    and how in the world do you get to "interfere in their rights to self expression"? are you seriously suggesting that I should shut up and buy their product because THEY have freedom of speech and I do not? are you seriously trying to make that case?

    What did Chik fil A do to gays? All the CEO did was to say (freedom of expressiom) he supported traditional marriage. Time for the gays to get a life. Seriously.

    He has freedom of speech, meaning the government can't stop him. But he has to face the consequences of that speech, meaning the rest of us can boycott their lousy food, and work to prevent their stores from infesting our neighborhoods.
  • Simmeri... Starman... 2012/09/20 05:55:11

    Just don't buy the product. Case closed and shut up now.

    That is what happened.....and the company reversed it's stand. Not buying their food WORKED. Perhaps YOU should 'shut up now'.
  • Starman... Simmeri... 2012/09/20 14:49:38
    Starman - Guru of Reason
    Ah, but I too have freedom of speech, my choice not to buy the food, my choice to talk about it, their choice to find that they have to give in to presure from the marketplace and reverse their positions.

    In your eyes, to others I am viewed as standing up for the important principals of equality and inclusion. Glad to hear that it ticked you off though.
  • twocrows Simmeri... 2012/09/20 15:21:31
    that is precisely what we did. we did not buy their product. and they reversed course.
    that's how boycotts work.
  • T Starman... 2012/09/22 17:46:09
    I want to give the company a piece of my 60 acres for free, just so I can eat there everyday!
